The math vocabulary lists are based on the Common Core seventh Grade Math Standards. The 7th grade vocabulary lists represent all of the sub categories common to seventh grade math terms, enabling students to bridge the gap from abstract concepts to concrete experience. Students can learn the proper pronunciation of 7th grade math words by listening to them being read or by playing exciting engaging games that drill and review. Whether in algebra, geometry or statistics, 7th grade math definitions are presented in an accessible and engaging manner that 7th graders enjoy. So, put down that 7th grade math dictionary and set aside that seventh grade math glossary, it's time to learn while having fun!
